  1. I'm currently working on a build for an LP Semi-Hollow Guitar. I was looking around for the finish I want to give it and decided on this. However, I'm not sure what paint Gibson used when they were making this model. Thoughts?
  2. Hey, totally new here and to this! I’m going to cut straight to the point. The other day I made a spontaneous buy off EBay. A Baldwin Epoch Les Paul “ by Gibson” Body only. I want to build my next guitar, I’m starting with a low budget and if it turn out good and I’m good at it I’ll make a better more expensive one in the future. After researching the guitar after buying the body, I noticed a guy in America has actually used this body on a build of his own. He put a telecaster neck onto it which looked great and I’m a sucker for a telecaster. The thing that kept going through m
  3. Hi everyone! First post on here and hoping someone could fill me in with a little advice. Many years back I started work on a Les Paul guitar. It was made out of Sapele and took a long time to cut out with the Jigsaw! However upon cutting out the basic shape I just gave up and it’s been sitting in my wardrobe ever since. Does anyone have any advice regarding the best template to use so that I can route out the neccessary areas? Any tips in general? Bare in mind some that I only have a very basic and cheap router. Thanks!
  4. Context: I'm fairly new to the ProjectGuitar community, and to guitar building, though I've played for 35ish years, and have been woodworking for 25ish. I've done a few repair/restoration/modification projects on electrics, acoustics and ukes, and am embarking on my first full, from-scratch electric build. I'm building it with my son (which, of course, is super fun for me) who has recently gotten serious as a player, and is interested in learning a little about the build process as well. Here's some shots of the shop, which I recently reorganized to be more guitar friendly (previous focus
  5. So i have a Les Paul and it has a buzzing issue. i checked and double checked all the wiring and everything is ok. I have been playing this guitar for a few years and this just happened. So on a whim I plugged in a regular guitar cable and checked to see if the tip and ring were touching with the bing option on my multi-meter. and sure enough there was! the buzz goes away when i am touching any metal parts but there is still continuity on the guitar cable. what is going on??? I spent at least 3 hours on it already. All of the sudden the buzzing is gone. Any ideas?
  6. Well all I am ready to start on my next two project lap steel guitars. I am going to build two concert ukulele size Les Paul style body's. cherry square necks (ala dobro), book matched walnut bottoms, cherry mid body's, one will have a book matched spalted maple top and the other a book matched flamed maple top. One will have an 18 fret 23" rosewood fret board and the other maple. The nut and bridge will be of the roller style, Grover tuners, and the pickups will be P 90 style connected to a Les Paul style wiring harness. But even though they will have Les Paul style body's. They will als
  7. This custom guitar was made by John Woods, a master luthier from southern Oregon. He has built guitars for many years (since 1969 to be exact), including pieces for well-known folks like David Lindley (former player for Kaleidoscope, Linda Ronstadt, Jackson Browne, etc). It has been modeled after a Les Paul Standard, but setup to be wired like a Fender Strat, so you get the best of both! The neck is 1-7/8" wide at the nut (1/8" wider than standard sizing) to accommodate large hands and fat fingers. The pickup and tone/volume control hardware mount through the back of the guitar, leaving t
  8. Alright so first off id like to start by saying I do not plan on doing this to deceive anybody, or sell it or any unethical stuff like that, however this is my first guitar. I've had it for about eight years, I,ve had others but always kept this one, I do not have the money to buy a les paul not even a studio but i figure if i spent a couple hundred bucks I could make it close. http://zurlocker.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/2007/08/20/white_epiphone.jpg http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/members/ledlover01-albums-epiphone-les-paul-studio-white-picture15172-les-paul-2186.jpg This is what my gui
  9. Hello everybody, Im new at this forum and i thought i would share my first LP build with you, I bought a Gibson black back beauty blueprint that is my main influense on this build but with some modifications. This will probably look more like an Esp eclipse when it's done, anyway som specs, the guitarbody is made from mahogny and the top is flamed maple. The neck is going to be maple as well. tremolo will be original floyd rose and seymour duncan black winter set for pickups. Also made my own inlays for this project, turned out quite nice. well what would a build thread be without some

  11. I got a 5A flame maple top that looks amazing. I was wondering... a. would you use it as a drop top say on a thinline tele style build or b.would you carve it leaving a 2mm faux binding line??? (maybe use some cream plastic binding) Thanks for the help guys!
  12. Relatively simple project remit - two Les Pauls made from Khaya Mahogany and Karelian Birch. One is to be receive a relic'ed "Gibson-ish" look with a black headplate, faded honeyburst, etc. whereas the other is to be more or less natural and is being made as a surprise birthday present for my wife. Shhh! There are many threads around the net which detail "vintage" Les Paul builds better than I can so I will merely make reference to these rather than rehash the information in them or worse, duplicate contentious information and create more confusion over certain details. The greatest resour
  13. G'day everyone, I'm new, as you can tell by my topic title. An old work colleague comes on here all the time and has built a few guitars in the past, and he's sent me across here to learn and participate. I am about to embark on my first ever build. It should be interesting indeed. Before I fill you in, my set up currently includes: Vox AC30, Gibson SG (61 reissue), Signature series Fender Telecaster (1995), and a bunch of pedals... and this old girl, who is going to be my first victim. She's an old school Epiphone LP-300 - the cheapo Les Pauls that pre-dated the LP-100. She was m
